The development comes a day after a proposal to impose a night curfew in the national capital was reportedly forwarded to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, reported Zee News. CM Kejriwal had reportedly said last Friday that Delhi was going through the fourth wave of COVID-19 but a lockdown was not being considered yet.
Issuing an order in this regard, the Delhi government stated that buses, Delhi metro, autos, taxis and other modes of public transport will be allowed to ferry only those people who are exempt from night curfew. However, it said that the departments providing essential services will remain exempt from the night curfew. The order from the Delhi government is applicable to movement of people and not essential goods and services.
“There shall be no restriction on inter-state and intra-state movement/transportation of essential/non-essential goods. No separate permission/e-pass will be required for such movements,” the Delhi government said in its order.
Earlier, Delhi reported 3,548 new cases and 15 deaths on Monday. This was the fourth consecutive day that Delhi reported more than 3,500 new coronavirus infections. On Sunday, it had registered 4,033 new cases, its highest single-day tally in 2021.
Meanwhile, the Delhi BJP spokesperson Khemchand Sharma has reacted to the news and said that that the night curfew is not enough, and that the incumbent AAP government needs to deploy their self-defence volunteers in crowded areas, increase testing, tracing and isolation and help senior citizens to get COVID-19 vaccination.
Earlier in the day, the Union Health Ministry informed that India recorded more than 96,000 COVID-19 cases in the last 24 hours.
